Christmas skiing: where should we head?
My family and I are planning to go skiing over Christmas, possibly arriving Christmas Day and staying for at least 5-7 days. My family consists of my husband, two adult children and spouses, one baby, my sister, husband and their adult children and kids. Altogether we will be about 13 adults and four children. Ideally, we'd like to rent two houses near each other in a ski area that also offers other things to do like cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice skating, etc.
Obviously, we're looking for the best value for our money. We love Colorado, but the fares make it expensive. In the northeast it's tough, because the conditions are usually not that great. Do you have any suggestions of where to go?
